Hampton Roads Mobility is one of the few companies around with the experience and expertise to modify your existing vehicle and make it handicap accessible. The installation of a Bruno Valet Seat, left-foot gas pedals, hand controls, steering wheel turning knobs and EZ Lock wheelchair docking systems are only a few of the vehicle modifications that we can do to help you regain your independence.
Bruno Valet Signature Seating
“When did it become hard to get in and out of my own car? I didn’t see that one coming!” You never do. Well, that’s not true. Sometimes a catastrophic event alters mobility in the blink of an eye. But, all too often, the slow erosion of dexterity is a creeping, subtle culprit. One day, the normal twisting, turning, or climbing required to get into and out of a vehicle becomes a challenge.
Valet Signature Seating by Bruno Independent Living Aids removes that challenge in style. Marvelous automotive seats that rotate…some that even move up and down for a perfect transfer height…will change your life. And, there’s nothing to these luxurious seats that says “medical” or “disabled.” The words that come to mind are “elegant,” “convenient,” and “What will they think of next?”
You’ve always been a person of action. Hopping in your car and going at a moment’s notice. You can stay that way.
Valet seats are designed for practically every type of vehicle. Love those high-riding SUVs? Pickup trucks more to your liking? It doesn’t matter. Hampton Roads Mobility can match your lifestyle and your vehicle with a turning seat that will deliver independence.
Left Foot Gas Pedals
Sure Grip’s new Left Foot Accelerator with electronic AutoLock was developed to limit, if not eliminate your liability by all but eliminating any chance the device can be used by anyone other than the intended user. Sure Grip’s unique 15-second activation window only allows the accelerator to be activated for 15 seconds after vehicles start up. The accelerator will not engage after 15 seconds without a restart of the engine. Sure Grip’s new accelerator is permanently mounted, eliminating the need for removal of the device to prevent unwanted usage. The accelerator mounts from above, and no longer requiring holes to be drilled in the floor of your vehicle. The OEM accelerator is manipulated via simple cable system. The new Sure Grip Left Foot Accelerator is constructed from rugged plastics and aluminum allowing for a lightweight device. The overall unit is dramatically reduced in size versus tradition removable accelerators, all parts of the incredible smooth and sensitive pedal feel.
The original and the best, the Sure Grip Push/Rock system, has become known for its comfort, precision and overall safety. Unlike other hand controls styles, the push/rock system puts the operating handle in a vertical position; the driver eases the handle back to accelerate and pushes forward to brake. This unique rocking motion allows full-range braking and acceleration with minimal hand travel while keeping the hand in a natural position. Sure Grip’s Push/Rock controls are known for having the easiest gas in the industry today thus, allowing for hours of fatigue free driving. The push/rock style will give you the driving experience you have been longing for. Sure Grip hand control designs prevents contact with legs or knees at higher speeds. The upright handle also allows the installation of controls in smaller vehicles or tight spaces other controls would not fit. Controls do not impede pedal use.
AutoLock is an accelerator lock out device that comes standard on all of Sure Grip’s hand controls, and is an added safety feature for the driver or those that share the vehicle. With the push of a button or knob, the accelerator function of the hand control can be disabled and help prevent accidents through misuse of the control by mechanics, valets or any other unqualified user. AutoLock is available in both electronic and manual formats.
Steering Wheel Accessories
Hampton Roads Mobility can install a variety of steering wheel accessories to provide independence on the road. Spinner knobs, Tri-pin grips, V-grips, Single Pin grips, Amputee Rings and Palm Grips are all available. We also install steering wheel extensions customizable to you and your vehicle.
EZ Lock Wheelchair Docking Systems
The EZ Lock Wheelchair Docking System easily secures a wheelchair to a vehicle floor — saving you both time and effort. Even better, the automatic docking base allows the user to lock the wheelchair into place without the assistance of others. No more struggling to cinch the straps down; no more hassle. EZ Lock makes it easy for you to meet your mobility needs — whether you are driving or just enjoying the ride. EZ Lock is perfectly suited for both wheelchair-seated passengers and drivers. In fact, no other adaptive device provides for more freedom of mobility, or enhances the user’s overall level of independence, than the EZ Lock Wheelchair Docking System. For more than twenty years EZ LOCK has been hailed as the “gold standard” of wheelchair docking systems, and they’ve maintained that distinction through focus, quality materials and attention to detail.
